“I’m 25 years old, and I’m on a space station orbiting the planets of the Human system.
I’m a DJ.
I’m alone.
That’s all I am.”

Earth is dead, but the Solar System is teeming with life.

Lost and alone, an ex-Martian returns from the edge of the system to find themself a new home. Through ancient technology, they begin broadcasting a radio show to no-one in particular, reminding themselves of where they’ve come from and where they’re going.

A one-person play written and performed by James Smith and directed by Anders Falstie-Jensen, wish i was there is an exploration of identity and what it means to be someone in a universe broader than you ever expected.
Set to a soundtrack featuring music from Talking Heads, Alabama Shakes and more, this is a play for all the lovers and loners looking for home on all the wrong planets.
